Chennai Super Kings cruised to a 27-run victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore . Chasing 182 for victory, Ashish Nehra-led Chennai attack restricted Bangalore to just 154 in the allotted 20 overs. Nehra emerged the wrecker-in-chief with a match-winning four-wicket haul.

Earlier, Suresh Raina struck a blistering 32-ball 62 to help Chennai Super Kings post a challenging 181 for eight. Put into bat after a 25-minute rain-delayed start, Chennai rode on Raina’s brilliant attacking half-century and his 54-run quickfire partnership from just four overs for the third wicket with his captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (13). Chennai lost a bit of momentum in between with quick dismissals of Raina, Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja (8) but they still scored 181 for eight with Faf du Plessis remaining not out on 33 from 18 deliveries.

Chennai were 81 for two at the halfway mark and added exactly 100 in the next 10 overs. Opener Dwayne Smith made a handy contribution of 39 from 29 balls. Raina came in at the fall of other opener Brendon McCullum (4) in the second over and after settling down, he set the Chinnaswamy Stadium on fire with some lusty blows all over the park. He hit four boundaries and six sixes in his 32-ball knock.
